Last week I visited the Coin Street Conference Centre for a work event. It’s such a gem that I didn’t even know existed – and it’s social, hurrah! The location is great (5 mins from Waterloo) and the spaces are large and bright and inspiring. We used the Neighbourhood Room, which was perfect for a full day team training. I’m not sure where they get their catering from, but it was delicious! It looks like they have loads of spaces to hire (including a roof garden), so it’s definitely worth checking them out if you’re looking for a Central London venue for any occassion.

I am completely in love with this organisation! It has so much to offer – a beautiful product, that is both environmentally friendly AND supports women seeking refuge. I recently found out that a friend is spending £10,000 on flowers at her wedding (!) – just think about the impact that money could have with an organisation like this. I can’t see a reason to ever buy fresh flowers for an event again.
